Eutrophia Farm to Disperse at Fasig-Tipton July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale
Mrs. Elisabeth “Betty” Alexander will disperse the majority of the Thoroughbred holdings of her Eutrophia Farm on Monday, July 11 at Fasig-Tipton’s July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale. Taylor Made Sales Agency will consign 23 horses as part of the reduction, which consists of mares and foals, yearlings, two-year-olds and horses of racing age.
Mares will be offered alongside their 2016 foals by CANDY RIDE, CURLIN, GIO PONTI, MAGNA GRADUATE, SCAT DADDY and VERRAZANO. Covering sires represented include COMPETITIVE EDGE, DECLARATION OF WAR, HARD SPUN, LOOKIN AT LUCKY, MAGNA GRADUATE, MIDSHIPMAN, MUNNINGS and VERRAZANO. Sires of yearlings and two-year-olds include LEMON DROP KID, SMART STRIKE, STAY THIRSTY, SPEIGHTSTOWN, TALE OF EKATI, TAPIZAR, and UNION RAGS.
Mrs. Alexander, along with her late husband Quentin, began breeding Thoroughbreds in 1970. Under the name of Eutrophia Farm, the Alexanders bred or raced five Ohio Champions and were often at the top of Ohio’s owner and breeder standings. Eutrophia’s most accomplished runner to date is MAGNA GRADUATE, a seven-time graded stakes winner of over $2.5 million. Mrs. Alexander and her family have also produced and campaigned numerous champions in the Hunter world.
“We are flattered that Mrs. Alexander has entrusted the sale of her breeding and racing stock with Fasig-Tipton,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “She, along with her late husband Quentin, operated a breeding and racing operation at the highest level for nearly five decades, and the quality of her stock is reflective of her passion for racing and love for all things equine.” The interactive catalogue for the July Selected Horses of Racing Age Sale including the Eutrophia Farm Dispersal will be available online Wednesday, June 29th. Fasig-Tipton will continue to review and accept nominations up to the day of sale. A printed version of the catalogue will be available on the sales grounds by July 8th.
